      Morning Talker: Guns on campus?

      Chime in now!

      A recent spike in crime on a university campus in Atlanta has renewed the debate about students being allowed to carry guns.

      There are some student leaders at Georgia Tech University who are taking a stand and saying that the only way they will feel safe on campus is if they are allowed to carry guns to class.

      A couple of weeks ago three Tech students were robbed off campus which resparked this debate.

      Most recently a student asleep in a dorm behind three layers of campus security had a gun pointed at his head.

      Two of the leaders of Georgia Tech Students for Concealed Carry on Campus are Robert Eagar and Kyle Wilkins.

      "Over the last couple of weeks, we've seen an increase in online activity," Eagar said last week. "People have approached us through our Facebook page, offering support. We've received offers of support from people who have children here at Tech."

      There has been increased activity on their Facebook page titled, Georgia Tech Students for Concealed Carry.

      They also play to take a signed petition to the Georgia Governor.

      We are asking our facebook fans this morning if you feel that college students in urban areas such as Atlanta should be allowed to carry concealed weapons on campus? Will this present other problems for the school?
